Everyone wants to be a little famous. You want people to know who you are. It’s human nature. That’s why everyone gets so excited about being on TV. You see it all the time. There’s always some jackass waving his arms and ruining the shot whenever a reporter is doing a live segment on location. People will make clever signs to get camera time at sporting events. They’ll sign the consent form to show their face on Cops. They’ll talk about shit they don’t know about if it means that they’ll be on the 6 o’clock news. I know because I’ve done it. I’m guilty, I’ll admit it. Being on TV is always a thrill. I once saw myself shaking my head in disbelief on SportsCenter Top 10 in the background of a botched SF Giants play. I once camped out all night on the street to get into The Price is Right during Bob Barker’s last year. It was worth it. I was on TV. National TV. Millions of people saw me even if they don’t know it. That doesn’t make me a celebrity but I still feel like one. Get on TV if you haven’t and you’ll see what I mean.
